This article shows how the same fundamental questions raised by proslavery thought have consistently confronted not only modern scholars but also the very historical actors who battled over slavery's fate in the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries. It discusses early proslavery thought in the Americas, proslavery thought in the age of revolution, the role of proslavery thought in sectional conflict and postbellum sectional reconciliation, and the problem of proslavery thought in the modern world and in twentieth-century historiography.
